Acupuncture works

More and more people are turning to acupuncture for solutions to their health. Robust scientific research backs up what many people have known for years – acupuncture works.

MRI scans show that acupuncture triggers the body’s healing process by calming the central nervous system, regulating hormones and releasing endorphins.

How does Acupuncture work?

Daily stresses, lifestyle choices and injury upset our natural balance and lead to physical and emotional symptoms.

By identifying the root cause of the symptoms Kate uses very fine, painless needles to activate specific energy points on the body to help bring both body and mind back to health.
